Maurice River Watershed
Did you know?
The Maurice River system and the fresh and tidal wetlands it supports provide habitat for a diverse population of species, both migratory and resident. As part of the Atlantic Flyway, the river is part of the internationally significant region that supports millions of migrating birds each year. In 1993, the Maurice River and several tributaries, including the Menantico and Muskee Creeks and the Manumuskin River, were added to the National Wild and Scenic River System.
Natural habitat for rare plant and animal species, including sensitive joint vetch, the bald eagle, striped bass and other fish shorebirds, shortnose sturgeon and wild rice or wild oats—the sora rail “mud
Phragmites, which grow up to 13 feet and spread 30 feet a year, choke out native marsh vegetation and the animals that depend on native grasses.
